SmarterSpa Hot Tub Sanitation System - Natural Salt Chlorine Generator
Power 0.07 lbs/day
Warranty 1 Year Limited
Rated Lifespan 7000 Hours
Max Capacity 2000 Gallons
Chlorine Detection technology

ControlOMatic SmarterSpa salt chlorine generators are specifically designed to retrofit any brand of hot tub or spa up to 2000 gallons.

Sometimes, using a full-size saltwater pool system isn't an option for many spas, so the spa-style SmarterSpa chlorine generator is designed to be a very easy to install and does not interfere with the current plumbing or electronics: simply add salt, place in the water, and turn it on. The control unit plugs into a standard 110v GFCI outlet and attaches to the spa's skirt in just minutes. Even better - the advanced SmarterSpa includes patent pending chlorine detection technology which allows for automatic operation - no need to manually monitor and adjust your chlorine levels. Make your spa or hot tub sanitation effortless.

The SmarterSpa is plug-and-play! However, if you're looking for a concealed installation, the SmarterSpa Inline option allows the system to be connected to your existing pump/filter system and remain out of sight. Important: inline operation should be used with continuous pump operation or where power can be coordinated to turn pump and salt system on and off together. The SmarterSpa can also be utilized as a hot tub and spa saltwater bromine generator, for spas that currently use manual bromine sanitation

Why convert to salt? Because of the higher temperatures involved, the chemical balance of a hot tub must be continuously maintained in order to stay safe. Keeping up with spa and hot tub maintenance can be a challenge - forgetting to add chlorine or bromine just once can lead to cloudy, smelly spa problems. Even conventional chlorine feeder systems run out! Instead, Controlomatic SmarterSpa spa salt chlorinators allow you to automatically and consistently ensure crystal clear water without buying or adding anymore traditional chlorine or bromine. Using a very low level of natural salt, the SmarterSpa continuously sanitizes the water while eliminating the harsh chemical odors. That means a luxurious & natural experience when you soak in the hot tub, and worry-free & cost-effective maintenance along the way. And with its exclusive chlorine detection technology, the SmarterSpa eliminates the need to even monitor hot tub chlorine levels or adjust its operation!


  • Patent pending chlorine detection control technology.
  • Drape-Over and concealed install.
  • Adjustable chlorine output.
  • Patented temperature compensation.
  • Salt level indicator.
  • Easy to use control panel.
  • Usage boost mode.

I wish I would have used this ten years ago - I used to have to babysit my hot tub but now I don't even think about maintenance for months at a time. Plus I love that the water doesn't smell like chlorine and my hair and skin don't get gross anymore.

Repeat purchase
Bought one a couple of years ago and wrote a favorable review then. My opinion hasn't changed. After a recent move and purchase of a new spa, I ordered a new SmarterSpa chlorinator as well. At $500 bucks a pop I would not have ordered another one if i wasn't thoroughly satisfied with it's performance. The very best part for me is not having to do daily maintenance. I can go away for a week at a time and not come back to cloudy water. The silky feel of the water is also a real bonus.

Great product
This unit was simple to install. It arrived quickly from the seller and was easy to program. The interface could use an updating, but once you set this, it is set and you probably will never touch it again. I added the recommended salt and it was spot on. I waited a few days, and the chlorine was perfect. I wish I did this spooner!

Questions From Customers

Q: What does the 7000 hour life refer to and how much does it cost to replace?

Asked by: Bob - 4/18/2019
A: That is how many hours of operation the cell is estimated to last - that works out to about 3 years or so for most people. That number let's you compare its lifespan to similar systems from other manufacturers. The replacement cell is about half the cost of the system, and then you should get another few years of use out of it (at significantly less cost!)

Asked by: DAVID CLARISSE - 3/9/2021
A: This unit can be mounted on the exterior of the spa or on a nearby support. It is meant to be out in the weather and in a place that you can easily access it. Any outdoor equipment can benefit from protection from the sun, but it is not required.

Q: What if I'm allergic to chlorine?

Asked by: Kevin - 5/31/2024
A: This is not medical advice and I'm not a doctor, but based on experience what most people are talking about when they say they have negative reactions to chlorinated water (especially the dry itchy skin, redness, and more caustic effects) are due to the "chloramines" which are byproducts of traditional chlorination and form because of incomplete oxidation. Chloramines in pools and spa cause those harsh effects, and salt chlorine generators typically prevent chloramines from forming and help remove them if present. That is why such pools have a much more natural swimming experience and are typically preferred by people with sensitive skin.

The SmarterSpa control panel is a small unit that can easily be mounted to the side of the spa or a attached to a nearby support. Its controls have three buttons for adjusting the chlorine or bromine production, and four indicator lights that let you know when it is generating or when you might need to check the cell. For power, the controls simply require a standard GFCI outlet.

The control panel has two power adjustment buttons to control the amount of sanitation, and one button to activate its boost mode. The SmarterSpa provides 10 levels of chlorine production. Its LED indicators let you know what power setting you have it on and if your salinity level is low, OK, or high.

The SmarterSpa Cell simply drapes over the side of the hot tub into the water when you desire active spa sanitation, the spa doesn't even have to be on or running! The clear cell lets you see it working and allows for easy inspection.

The Cell can also be installed out-of-sight directly into the spa's filter area when appropriate (see manufacturer recommendations) using the optional kit (manufacturer part: CM-CELL-HIDE).
